So I haul make up quite regularly *cough cough* and there’s no doubt that some things induce far more excitement than others.
I was thinking; most make up I buy without thinking, out of habit (ie. I collect Nars multiples so I’ll even buy ones that don’t suit me!) and quite often just because I want to review it, or swatch it, or just because it’s a new release. (When I buy MAC for example, I usually find it quite a ‘staple’ brand and I don’t get too excited about my orders arriving.)
Only sometimes do I buy something that makes me really giddy and excited and I’m counting down the days for it to arrive.
It’s usually something expensive, something Asian, something Limited Edition. Who am I kidding? A quick whip around in Superdrug just doesn’t feel the same!
At the moment I am giddy at the prospect of a few things that are in the post…Cle De Peau Extra Rich Lipstick, a new Anna Sui Eyeshadow (most beautiful shell packaging), YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks, Jill Stuart’s Loose Blush (so damn expensive!). I have some really cute bits from Melliesh and Candydoll cosmetics too! Can’t wait!
I get the package in the post (and I always know what’s inside cos tragically, I recognise the handwriting) and savour it before opening. Pretty, pretty make up inside. I think I’m addicted to parcels.
So how do you feel about your hauls?
Is everything you buy something you are giddy about or do you ever buy out of habit or peer pressure etc?
Do you have anything due in the post that is making you excited?
